    Being that my job requires me to travel in Dade , Broward and Palm beach Counties and into many neighborhoods I stumble upon many plants and I photo plants that I find interesting so here is a nice one I found today

    Bud,

    I have no name, but a croton that looks very close to your find. Mine has a slight red underside on some of the leaves. Nice find.

    I think you nailed it! To me it looks identical to the picture in the book ( page 120).

    Ray,

    Thanks! I was not aware that Marigold was the same as the Yellow Duke. Marigold sounds much more exciting as a name than Yellow Duke of Windsor. Still learning....
